>> i need you to go out and find someone that voted for barack obama and get them to vote for me, all right. >> romney's pitch comes as polling shows president obama has the advantage in nine battleground states including razor-thin leads in north carolina and nevada and a bigger lead in mitt romney's vacation destination, new hampshire. all of it comes with a new headline from politico. in the end, it's mitt. all of us making a first presidential debate, which is less than one week away now even more critical for the governor. let's bring in "news nation" panel. david godfrin, michael and steve daise, conservative radio talk show host. thanks to you for being with me on this friday. steve, let me start with you. these new poll numbers, the head-to-head showing the president now ahead in all three states, north carolina, nevada and new hampshire. new hampshire, of course, romney's home away from home where he has a vacation spot. governor romney's favorables continue to be underwater in all but north carolina now. combine these numbers with what we've seen all week, how worried a
to be trailing after the democratic convention. president obama is pulling ahead in the upper midwest. i think this may be less about -- this is only mitt romney, and mitt has to be mitt and it's all about mitt. this runs deeper than that. this is a sort of recentering of the american electorate we're witnessing. >> let's go back to the political article. it isn't the chair or the ho-hum convention or the looked video or stewart stevens or the improving economy or media bias or the message or mormonism. it's mitt. is it that simple? is the problem at the end of the day that it's the candidate himself? it's mitt romney who perhaps isn't what some thought he would be in terms of a candidate? >> i think it's some of the intangibles that surround the race, but i think largely it's the candidate himself. the problem, as i perceive it, is he's trying to please too many different bosses. he had to attack far to the right craig to win the primary process. he survived it. i thought there was going to be a leftward move towards the center to put him more where he was at the governor of massachusetts. it

. >> the obama administration is facing serious questions whether the deaths of the four men could have been prevented because of ongoing security concerns. the state department official says the u.s. is drawing down its staff and embassy in libya's capit capital. >>> we just got word mitt romney will have a phone call conversation with benjamin netanyahu and so will president obama. it comes two days after president obama stood before the united nations and warned against a nuclear iran. yesterday, netanyahu underscored iran having a nuclear bomb and shrugged off. he said the world may be months away from the point of no return. >> where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. befo before, before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. before iran gets to a point where it's a few months away or a few weeks away from amassing enough enriched uranium from making a nuclear weapon. >> mahmoud ahmadinejad accused israel of carrying out a campaign of ethnic cleansing. netanyahu fired back saying the state hood of palestinians cann
is down, way down in the obama years and down again last month. income now lower by 8.2%. that is a flat-out decline in purchasing power and standard of living for american households, down. but so far, no impact on president obama's standing in the polls. he leads in swing states, ohio and florida and on the question of economic policy, the president leads mitt romney 48-39. now, this is what happens in europe when living standard plunge, rioting overnight in spain and a general strike in greece, this is the people's response over there to austerity. we've got another all-star lineup for you, watch out everybody, "varney & company" is about to begin. woman 1: this isn't just another election. we're voting for... the future of our medicare and social security. man 1: i want facts. straight talk. tell me your plan... and what it means for me. woman 2: i'm tired of the negative ads and political spin. that won't help me decide. man 2: i earned my medicare and social security. and i deserve some answers. anncr: where do the candidates stand on issues that... affe seniors today and in the

president obama and republican nominee romney essentially in a dead heat. president obama winning by just 1 percentage point as the race enters its final weeks. senior fellow at the american enterprise institute is joining us now from washington, d.c. kevin good to see you. what is the one thing that mr. romney will do to try and push ahead with his economic agenda that he has not been doing and that needs to be doing in previous weeks? >> well, i think that the biggest thing coming up is that governor romney is going to have a chance to speak directly to the american people in the debates and to challenge president obama. you know, one of the untold stories of this campaign for example is that president obama has absolutely no plan to create jobs. that thing they were waving at the convention, his 4 trillion dollars plan was actually just his budget from last year which went -- which went to the floor of the house and senate and got no votes. that kind of conversation is not getting through because of the mainstream media bias. dagen: mr. romney can also speak for himself. he has been wide
remain in place. still remain secure. >> we hope he is right. last month, president obama said his administration made clear to the syrian regime that if we start seeing a government moving around, quote: a whole bunch of weapons that would be a red line. so far there is no word from the white house about whether this latest movement means syria has crossed that red line. but the white house is taking other steps. we know that to target the syrian regime. in fact, today, secretary of state hillary clinton attended a meeting at the united nations and pledged another $45 million to help the opposition in syria. those rebels who are trying to force out their brutal and bloody leader. it's fox top story and jonathan hunt is in it -- on it live at the united nations tonight. do we have any indication of what those rebels, who are opposing rat jesus' name plan to do with that money? >> well, what we are told by 15 million of the 45 million will go towards communication equipment for the rebels. something that the u.s. has previously funded. the other 30 million, according to secretary o
's the issue with 2011 here? >> well, look, obama has said i'm going to tax rich people and implying he's not going to tax you. in fact, he passed tax increases on average income americans many many times during his presidency. there are 20 different taxes in obama care that we will all be paying. in addition to that, of course obama's new promise that he won't tax rich people, he's got a new term limit on it, 12 months. only next year, after that we could have a vat or other things. so if you are obama and you intend to allow the bush tax cuts to lapse, so there's a 500 billion dollars tax increase on low income people, middle income people, all americans, you want to talk about anything other than the tax increases that you have scheduled. i mean he's running up trillions of dollars of debt over the next deca decade, according to his budgets. the only way he pays for them since he's not cutting spending is to raise taxes on everyone. what do they want to do? oh gee what did romney pay in taxes four or five years ago? that has nothing to do with anything. we ought to be reducing taxes

the parties involved, how much our personal relationships between netanyahu, president obama, netanyahu, mitt romney, how much is that playing into what we'ree hearing about this and other issues? >> i don't think what the prime minister did yesterday had any, but i think people seem to discard the importance of personal relations. in a politics and international relations or even national affairs, not love affairs and not all about rumors. at the same time personal relations come and all you have to do to have this brought home to you is remember the very bad relations between president roosevelt in the second world war, a very great extent america's decision to enter the war, to help the united kingdom because of the disdain and distrust between those two leaders. i believe personal relationships to count and i hope whoever the next resident i is, relations between him and the prime minister of israel will be as they always were. warm, trustful, genuine and ones of great strategic alliance. connell: thank you very much for coming into the studio today. appreciate it. thanks. dagen: vast maj
